How To Add Link Stickers To Your Instagram Stories

Instagram stories: Released last summer, it was in June when Instagram introduced some stickers for stories that allow you to insert a link or hyperlink to share a webpage, blog, etc. outside of Instagram with your followers. But the feature was limited to verified accounts or those with a certain number of followers.

The rest of the community also wanted to use it and today Instagram announced that these link stickers are now available “regardless of the size of your account”.

Hyperlink Stickers for Instagram Stories

The link stickers feature has completely replaced the “swipe up” feature, the way Instagram users could link to external web pages from their stories, which the platform retired in August of this year.

If you want to use these new stickers to share what you want on your Instagram stories, we will tell you how to do it. When people click on the sticker, they’ll be redirected to that link you post:

How to add links to your stories
Open Instagram and make sure it is up to date (check directly by searching for the app in the Google Play Store or the App Store)
Capture or upload content to your story
Select the sticker tool in the top navigation bar
Touch the “Link” sticker to add the desired link and tap “Done”
Stick the sticker on your story and tap the sticker to see the color variations
To further customize that hyperlink, we’re working on Instagram on ways to customize the sticker so it’s clear what someone sees when they click on your link.
